Bee Pollen contains nearly every nutrient needed to maintain perfect health. It is packed with carbohydrates, protein, and B vitamins that help keep you going all day, enhancing stamina and fighting off fatigue. It is a natural energy booster that jump starts your morning and sustains you throughout the day.
The high protein content makes it the perfect supplement for vegans, vegetarians, and others who find it difficult to supplement their diet with all-natural solutions. In addition, this protein is readily available to the body in the form of free amino acids, which can be a huge contribution to your nutritional needs. Bee pollen isn't changed in any way by the honeybee. It naturally gathers on their legs during forage for nectar, and we simply collect a little bit every time the honeybee crawls back into the hive, while ensuring they have enough for their own nutrition within the hive.
Bee Pollen can also be used topically to treat inflammatory conditions like psoriasis or eczema. The amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants such as zinc and silica can protect the skin and aid the stimulation and regeneration of the cells. (From both internal and external use)
Bee Pollen contains antioxidants in large quantities that act as an anti-inflammatory for your lungs, improving the quality of the tissue in your lungs and potentially preventing asthma.
